Professor Jaya Ramji-Nogales spoke at the 2nd Annual Conference of the Refugee Law Initiative (RLI) that took place from June 5-7, 2017 at the Senate House of the University of London.

The chosen theme for this year’s conference – “Mass Influx? Law, Policy and Large-Scale Movements of Refugees and Migrants” – reflected a need to re-examine complex issues surrounding large-scale sudden movements of persons across borders, as we build towards the Global Compacts in 2018. The three day event, hosted at Senate House, brought together 200 participants from across the globe from governments, courts, NGOs, international organisations and agencies, legal practice and academia, to debate and exchange ideas on the protection of forced migrants and stateless persons.

Professor Ramji-Nogales, who chaired and presented on the panel entitled “Mass Migrant Flows, International Obligation and Internal Resistance: Trump’s Executive Orders in Critical Perspective,” also wrote a blogpost on her talk for the Refugee Law Institute.
